Rosendale Incident A Real Tragedy For The Family


Fond du Lac County Chief Deputy Sheriff Mark Strand says there are no easy answers as to why a 54-year-old Rosendale man set fire to his own home before shooting and killing himself. After the fire last Friday night investigators talked with the family of Joseph Shafer and he says no one could come up with a clear cut consensus as to why it happened. But for the family it’s a real loss. He says it is obvious that it was a planned event. Firefighters couldn’t get too close to put the fire out until authorities determined it was safe. Shafer doused gasoline around the home and had a fuse running out to a garage to some commercial grade fireworks.
